Ah true that.

Use the sanyo battery pack; add 5000mah of juice.

But is pay at least $5+ more per month for extra micro sim

I checked spider88.com.sg, Challenger etc. No one seems to have it in stock anymore.

I am still thinking about whether to get the non-4G, or wait for the 7-inch 32GB 4G model to take advantage of the extra 0.5GHz CPU clock speed, and have the option of 4G if I decide to use 4G instead of Bridge.

4G, you'll need get a microsim, and it has to be a special version one (if I recall correctly) and have to apparently pay extra for that. Date of release won't be anytime early from what I was told earlier this month haven't really asked them again. Singtel & starhub has it in testing for months already, while the last problematic newbie was late (very) in the game of network and this 4g device.

Thanks for the info Maddy.

Do you know whether the multiSim for the playbook follows the same plan as the BB phone? For example, I have BB plan and BB dataroam. If I get the multiSim for Playbook, will the playbook have BB dataroam access through 4G (provided the foreign country support 4G, of course)?...Hmmm...Am I even making sense of this?

Multisim just allows u to use the same plan and number on different (or a few) sim cards.
